Saturday: 3 way dance

Hello I'm Alan, I'll get elbow to my head, so you don't have to.

Blue Jays Comp entries due "TONIGHT!"
By Jake88

Last week was head to head of Stadium Series concepts. Today I decide to raise the bar up with "3 way dance!" That's right! I got 3 alternate concepts here to see which one is the best! Let's get going shall we.

Carolina Hurricanes alternate concept [by Dylan W.]
Up points: Nice style on the hem stripe. The logos is an good choice to use. Two stripes on the collar is thumbs up from me.
Down points: The arm stripes doesn't have the same treatment as the hem. Good choice of number fonts, but on the back two 4s is too close together to my mind.
My Suggestion: Give the arm stripes the same treatment as the hem stripe, and space out the back numbers a little bit apart.

Dallas Stars alternate concept [by Jake88]
Up points: Using the state logo on the front is a good move. Adding trim on the numbers is an good idea.
Down points: The jersey is good, but it has that minor vibe to it. The only silver I see is on the logo and not anywhere else. The trims on the numbers looks like it blend together that is hard to see.
My Suggestion: Add some silver to the jersey to give it more life to it. Change the black, and green trim on the numbers to green and silver. 

Chicago Blackhawks alternate concept [by Jeremy R.]
 Up Points: This looks classy and nice. Love the arm stripes. The yokes stripes maybe weird, but well placed. Numbers and nameplates are classic and well untouchable.
Down points: The hem looks too plain to me without any black stripes to it. No ID to know who made this, and could potentially be stolen by someone else.
My Suggestion: Give the hem the same treatment as the arm stripes. Add your ID with it, ether your name, your nickname, etc.

The Winner: All three are really matched both ups, and downs. But in the end Jeremy's Blackhawks alternate concept takes the victory today, despite no ID with the concept, but it's an very good concept no doubt about it.

Well that's today's post, tonight I'm off to Wheatley, Ontario to watch some Jr C game between the home team the Wheatley Sharks taking on the Wallaceburg Lakers, It'll be fun for me, and maybe hopefully they sell any game worn jerseys there for me to buy to add to my jerseys collection.
Until then I'm Alan, I'll get elbow to my head, so you don't have to.

  1. I actually like the canes jersey better than my own, I have changed templates because jerseys look awkward on that tenplate
